Hugh Calkins: Experience Counts

Hugh Calkins 2013:

Breaking news! When it comes to complications of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation, experience matters.

“The overall complication rate was 6.29% in patients undergoing AF ablation. There was a significant association between operator and hospital volume and adverse outcomes. This suggests a need for future research into identifying the safety measures in AF ablations and instituting appropriate interventions to improve overall AF ablation outcomes.”
